Speaker:  Dawn Eden Goldstein

Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson called Father Edward Dowling, SJ, "the greatest and most gentle soul to walk this planet." Father Ed's guidance transformed Bill’s life and deepened the spirituality of the twelve-step movement. But despite his vital role in A.A. history, Dowling's own story has never been told--until now. Dawn Eden Goldstein, author of the new biography Father Ed, shares about the life and message of this remarkable Jesuit who came to devote his ministry to helping people.
